Ruth 1:20-22 
And she said to them, Call me not Naomi pleasant; call me Mara bitter, for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. I went out full, but the Lord has brought me home again empty. Why call me Naomi, since the Lord has testified against me, and the Almighty has afflicted me?

If you have never read this story, here we have a woman whose life was drastically changed. First, she and her husband, Elimelech, and their two sons left Bethlehem because of a severe famine.

Looking for a better life, they journeyed to Moab. While in Moab, Naomi’s husband, Elimelech, dies, and ten years later, her two sons die, leaving her to care for her two daughters-in-law. Naomi decided to return to Bethlehem, but upon returning she has no husband or sons, instead a bitter heart.

Just as Naomi did not understand why God had chosen to take her through one of the most challenging experiences in life, some of us pondered as well. Just like a child growing up in life we have expectation and plans that usually don’t include bruises, flat tires, accidents and bumps in the road.

We have a choice to make, either we are going to allow the situations to make us bitter, with what He had allowed, or we are going to let the situation develop and make us into a better person, today, decided to use the situation as a catalyst to make your life better. You can do it!!!!
